What do you listen to before a show?

What do you listen to before you go to a show? Any specific releases or tapes that you listen to before you go or do you avoid anything by the band before the show? Any suggestions? Favorites?

I know I've seen a thread like this somewhere, but alas, the search engine said it could not find it. Typical.

    I like some Dave and Tim. Keeps it nice and fresh. Say, Radio City.

    Lithium on Sirius XM, and then banter from my fellow concert-goers while waiting in line / waiting for the opener to come on stage.

    Re: What do you listen to before a show?

    Show days are usually more like DMB days, where I'll listen to them all day long leading up to the show. That's how it is with every band I go see though. I just immerse myself in the music and end up gaining a better appreciation for it by the end of the day, plus it's a shit load of fun.

    Re: What do you listen to before a show?

    This year i watched the Fuse documentary the night before and then made a playlist of dave about 30 min shorter than the drive to the venue so i could listen to the concert but have some time with other music before the show

    Re: What do you listen to before a show?

    for tailgating its usually a mix of: Bob Marley, Slightly Stoopid, Sublime, Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Doors, maybe some Outkast/Kid Cudi/Biggie/Lil Wayne mixed in...

    Never DMB though

    Usually listen to a live album on the way to the show. Sometimes a couple albums in the days leading up to the concert.

    Re: What do you listen to before a show?

    Driving to the destination I usually listen to DMB shows I have been to. On the way to venue is usually something other than DMB. I have no desire to hear a song like Warehouse and then get my hopes up to hear it all night. In Atlanta I rocked Govt Mule, in Tampa we had Stanton Moore Trio, I think WPB N1 was MJ and N2 was Phish/Galactic.

    Then some meathead pulls up next to us, pops his trunk, opens Corona, plays Crash and cuddles with girl while leaning on car. Meathead's playlist usually sounds like this:
    Crash Into Me
    Crush
    Satellite
    You & Me
    Dreamgirl
    Stolen Away

    You get the drift...

    I always listen to DMB to get me pumped before a show. Last time, it was actually L@LC. So I guess not always DMB. But DMB songs.
